Hangovers receded, weather forecast promising – off we go for one of our days out. This time, two birds with one stone – the Smith’s Farm Shop at Chapel Brampton then on to walk the Boggle along the river Nene (pronounced Nen around here) near Earls Barton.
Yes, he’s “in”. First 5 minutes!
We’re thinking of chugging this way next Summer and so it’s good to have a look first – it does seem very tranquil – even if a tad muddy underfoot:
They have strange guillotine locks here . . .
With metal beams. Plus a Env. Agency licence will be required.
There was a pony attack here! I just think they thought we had food.
Very liable to flooding – all round here – lots of sluices and weirs . . .
On our way home we saw this “ice bow” weather phenomenon . . . caused by high altitude ice . . . brrr! Home to the boat to our coal fire.
